Imaginary FriendI once had a friend.
That was made of pretend,
Who's only friend was me.
We played all alone,
Just all on our own.
Down on the hills,
And the trees.
We ran through the woods,
Jumped in the hills,
And played in the dark,
Because we lived for the thrills.
We went on our journeys,
And time would stand still.
The world would change,
Because it was our will.
Then came the days
My friend started to fade.
We no longer spoke,
We just sat in the shade.
And as we sat silent
We looked at the sky .
My friend left for the last time,
Without a goodbye.
I guess the fact is.
They were no longer shy.
I once had a friend,
Broken ButterfliesI opened my mouth and coughed out the wingsBroken Butterflies in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Throwing up the colors,
From once beautiful things.
They crawl up my throat,
And pry through my teeth,
Revealing the darkness,
I've hid underneath.
Her words echo in my head,
I try to stand.
But fall instead.
They no longer had that fluttery feel.
I guess the love had lost its appeal.
I cough and clutch at the hole in my chest.
Is this just love at its best?
She said she hates the world.
But I know she loves it so,
I have seen her on the hill,
With the evening afterglow.
She feeds them with my beating heart
Like the sweetest tart.

Except for a whisper,
they don't dare make a sound.
Step by step
We move away from the past.
like steady drops of sand,
Being viewed from stained glass.
Softly and slow
Drop by drop
forced to step and never stop.
We slowly fade away
Like sand in a broken hour glass.
Always on different paths,
We may only brush by.
Never to touch,
Until the day we die.
MarionetteThe strings dig deep into her veins.Marionette in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
She moves with them,
To dull the pain.
A painted face,
With a printed smile,
Her emotions left unversitile.
She dances alone, secluded,
Forlorn and deluded.
And only for her twisted master.
A mental crafter,
A vile bastard.
Only I can see the tears,
And only I know all her fears.
I flick my fingers to the right,
On my command she stands up right.
I flick my finger to the left.
She'd murder all the ones she left.
Maybe its love,
Or maybe it's insane.
I don't know the reasons,
Or why she's bound with chains.
I just can't help but love,
Her face so filled with pain.

The girl picked up her palette
And retrieved her brush
Before watching closely
She saw her creatures gather
But without communication
She splashed a shiny brown
Onto her canvas
With small pieces of black
She added fine lines for string
And gaping holes for pipes
The girl carefully painted
Something on their faces
For sound to come from
With a delighted laugh
She created letters
And painted them into her books
And upon the minds of her people
She gave her creatures voice
With each careful stroke
And tentative creation
And hummed song
She painted whispering gossip

And follow her wisps no matter where they float to
With her mentalities cracked and all

Masked by innocent cloaks
The hawks continue to fly
As their wings go up in smoke
Lost battles become forgotten
Bloody fields too
The world travels on
How they tried to renew
Yet the song is still heard
Through deep memories tread

That which he holds shares a common foe
And as his mind begins to fall
It cannot bother him at all
For a true flame will never die

and sometimes being in love.
Magazine dreams rip at the seams in the light,
and we are imagining the feeling of sometimes being in love,
and sometimes being alive
Bright coloured cars start highway wars in plain sight,
and we are imagining the feeling of sometimes being alive,
and sometimes being in love.
Tasting the sounds as the ocean pounds against moonlight,
and we are imagining the feeling of sometimes being in love,
and sometimes being alive.

Of this shattered glass masterpiece
Hold it together
Hold her together
Until she's strong enough again
Be her bullet vest
Protect this particle masterpiece
Throwing the hammers far

More ways to break this shattered glass
And bury it below
Love is a masterpiece
Protect this with all you have
Or it will be broken forever
ConfessionsMy throat is chokingConfessions in Free Verse More Like This
Closing shut at the thought of these words
I'm choking on myself and I can't breathe
Although you're far away
I can still imagine you here
Where these words would choke me to silence
Tonight I'll use these fingertips
And send these thoughts intentionally
I'll rebuild what I've destroyed
I'll be better than I was before

Pretend all you knew was true
And just let go

But never be afraid
Because all you know,
Was once unknown

Let you fingers move in sync
Count the times
Match it in rhythms
Vibrate this precious air
Make me think in ways I never knew
Fill me with the unknown
Make me forget my troubles
Drown me in your alcohol
Start me in the morning
Begin my mind with a confused comathought
End me in the evening
Make me sleep with my memories and thoughts
And with the time inbetween
Let my mind run wild with the possibilities you can bring
Nickel wrapped delight in the dark
Pounded animal skins in torturous tune
Vibrating sinews of the beasts in harmonies of gold
These complete me
These deconstruct me
Drug me into a coma
Monologue of a traveller.Monologue of a traveller. in Free Verse More Like This
A shadow lingered on the shattered walls,
swaying in the light of the crescent.
He claimed to having answered destiny's calls,
so he gave life to places long quiescent.
But gods had been merciless to his young age;
throughout the traveller's endless route
they had made apparent their growing rage;
hidden dangers appeared from the bruit.
He held onto sanity's smallest grain
fingers slipping through invisible ropes.
Broken symbols are all that remain
after the illusion of cruely stolen hopes.
His conscious is now much too frail,
and his words are now much too sinuous.
His impregnable diligence to no avail,
and his frenzied monol
Childhood Dreams.I remember that boy, as I sit here now, writing over a dusty keyboard. I remember his eyesgreen and excited; full of life; eager to love; eager to learn.

He loved the sun. It brought him great sorrow watching it dip behind that black figure of the hill.
'When I grow up, I'll find the sun behind that mountain.' He had said.

hung on the thin thread of luck.
The rules are simple, comical.
Either you stay still or you die.
Sinking deeper, engulfed in unwrought nigritude.
Slate black faces,
buried inside shadows of hoods,
Bony fingers cruddle grinning sculps,
caressing fear as if it were an infant.
Hollow screams echo eternally like a melody
through unsought caverns.
As Death sang a lullaby.

That's what's left from the old me.
I touch the place on my chest,
Where my heart used to be.
I feel the beating, but the heart is gone.
Was it ever really there?
And I wonder; am I made out of stone?
Cause the moments I feel are rare.
And I'm asking you now,
Now that my mind is clear.
Will you tell me how
I'm supposed to get rid of the fear?
How am I supposed to fight the demons,
When I don't know where my angels lay?
And how am I supposed to keep them at bay?
They're always therein the back of my head.
Whispering. Slithering. Destroying.
Now I know I'd be better off dead

and it can also breed perfection.
When they shut me in their vaults,
to prevent my inevitable objection,
they wrapped chains around my wrist
and forced my eyes closed;
taught me how not to resist
and how to stay composed.
I remember that day very clearly,
when the man in black came near.
He leaned close and whispered dearly,
'Son, love's the product of fear.'
Eyes searched for my own,
forcing me to nod.
As I, once again alone,
pretended to be awed.
They sat me down on the chair,
I cowered away from their glare,
and agreed with their convictions.

broken patterns of an ivy.
Taste my skin.

She held the rose,

He stroked her cheek

So, next to the creek
and under the open skies;
he touched her lips with his own.
It was the only bliss,
they'd ever known.
Their first kiss.
